This article presents a tutorial for implementing task-focused development using NetBeans IDE with the NBTaskFocus project. Mylyn was the popular project providing task-focused interface for Eclipse and got included in the main Eclipse distribution. These features were in a lot of demand for NetBeans IDE and NBTaskFocus project attempts to provide some of the features in demand. We can now work on our tasks in a better way in NetBeans IDE also using the NBTaskFocus modules.
Task Focused Interface has become an accepted concept in the current programming paradigms. Mylyn made a breakthrough to introduce the Task Focused Interface in Eclipse world. Cubeon introduced the Task Focused concepts for NetBeans IDE, with many integrations with third party issue databases like JIRA. I was searching for a Task Focused Interface for NetBeans whch will track my opened files automatically in my current task. I ended creating one such feature in project NBTaskFocus.
